We often get asked about what we are working on. While you can be sure we are always working, and that our work probably involves some version of PocketBible, we understand you may be interested in a more detailed explanation of what is going on behind the scenes. It is in that spirit that we are going to try something new with an occasional post on what’s in the pipeline for apps and books.
You’ll notice we don’t talk about release dates. We’ve been in this business for a long time and have learned that our best-laid plans often go awry. In fact, in the software business, that’s the rule rather than the exception. So we don’t spit into that wind nor tilt at those windmills. We’re pursuing the goals you see below at our best pace and will release new books and updates to our apps as soon as they’re ready.
- PocketBible for Android – Version 1.4.4 is current. Includes support for upcoming BookBuilder improvements with respect to user-created Bibles. Currently working on minor bug fixes and improvements.
- PocketBible for iOS – Version 3.3.7 is current. Right now we are working on implementing features specific to iOS 9 and adding a couple features to the Advanced Feature Set.
- PocketBible for Mac OS X – Version 1.1.5 with better support for user-created Bibles using BookBuilder and some minor new features was released on April 9, 2015.
- PocketBible for Windows Phone and Windows Store – Currently working on a universal version of the app for Windows 10.
- BookBuilder for Mac OS X – Version 1.1.0 is current.
- BookBuilder for Windows Desktop – Version 2 was released in September 2015 to bring it up to par with improvements introduced in the Mac version.
Here’s what our editorial team has in the queue for you (not in any particular order):
- Additional volumes of the Ancient Christian Commentary Series (IVP)
- The Applied New Testament and Old Testament Commentary (Cook)
- Wesley Study Bible (Abingdon)
- NASB Bible text Updates
- Tree of Life Version (TLV)
- More non-English Bibles (?)
Disclaimers: All this is subject to change in priority, feasibility, copyright licensing, etc. That means we reserve the right to never release these features or books. We are sharing with you the current plan which is written in sand, not stone. Also, just because something is not on this list doesn’t mean we are not considering it. Finally, we are open to your requests, suggestions and comments!
